    I have a motor home on a fiat 2.8 turbo chassis.
    The engine heater coil on the dash flashes for a while after the engine has started.
    Anybody got an answer.
    Thanks.

    could be the heater plug relay is sticking/weak return spring.

    needs testing with an Ohm/continuity meter

    if so then not worth playing with..just replace.
